The Realisation

Finally, some positivity.

Yesterday, prior to my revendevous with James, I was stood in front of my full-length mirror in my bathroom, stocking-and-suspendered up, checking the shock-absorbing qualities of my new basque.

What a nice image.

So many of my friends complain about their bodies, their saggy bingo-wings, their alopecia (thankfully that one bypassed me). But honestly, I think it's about the way you see yourself. For example, I am a healthy size 12. Many of my fitnnes-freak friends find this a little appauling, force feeding me rice crackers, or encouraging me to swap my muffin for a granola bar.

I think it's a bit out-of-order. I am not fat. I am curvy. In fact, I think a fuller-figure is an asset, rather than a draw back. (However, I must stress, when I say a 'fuller figure' is an asset, I do not mean the kind of 'fuller figure' which proves problematic in doorways.)

After sometime of embracing this rather anti-women ideal of the skinny minnie, I have decided to give my friend's prejudices the boot, and am feeling much the better for it. So much so that yesterday I donned my underwear in a pre-date rehearsal, and danced rather vigorously around my room to an old Alisha's Attic album. Like a banshee. Maybe even a wailing one.


New M&S super-bra and suspender belt. He is not going to know what...

...hit him.

That's funny, I just wrote on the subject a couple of days ago...

Your text, however, is much better than mine, and lets imagination go wild. Mine, anyway.

Size 12-14 is an ideal size - don't listen to unhealthy fashion. Real men want real women.

Well said, we should all be proud of our curves, they're what make us women!

Way cool, happy with yourself means you are happier with life and lovers and others find you happier...and sexier. Rock on, and the mental image of you doing just that is making my day!

Size 12 is a minimum for those of us who love real women - be proud of your curves and revel in the possibilites that they bring.

Really like your blog

Stocking-and-suspendered up: great stuff - copyright it quick.

And you're right - most of us men do like curvy women

For substantially adding to your sex appeal - try Lola Luna. I'm a huge fan myself - bought several pairs for the Other Woman. Although perhaps for the hirsute, a little trim first is worth considering...
